Jonathan Biggins’ “Australia Day”
2:00 pm until 4:30 pm
AUSTRALIA DAY by Jonathan Biggins
Directed by Col Kirkman and Robert Comber
WELCOME to the typical little Aussie country town of Coriole, where life is laidback and carefree – unless you’re a member of the Australia Day Committee, who couldn’t raffle a chook in a pub.
Charged with putting together the ultimate cultural celebration of what it means to be Australian, the town’s six quirky community leaders are all over the place like a mad woman’s breakfast in matters of national identity.
So grab a lamington and a stubbie, sit back, and find out whether Coriole’s Australia Day will be a little ripper, or will it go off like a bucket of prawns in the sun?
Language Warning – “Australia Day” contains strong language and mature themes.
